Company History

vGroup International (vGI) can trace its origins back to 1992, when it was founded by Martyn Nash under the name Visscher-Caravelle. At that time, the product range was somewhat limited, comprising almost exclusively vehicle carpet mats, and the client base was equally modest consisting primarily of original equipment manufacturers.

Over the past 15 years, vGI has experienced remarkable success and has grown considerably. The client base now includes many of the leading UK and European vehicle leasing companies, several major dealership groups and original equipment manufacturers; as well as many leading high street retail chains.

The product range has expanded vastly too, and the Group now has the ability to source and deliver almost any motoring-related product. For retail customers, vGI provides a wide and innovative product range to assist them in both strengthening their brand and meeting their own marketing objectives.

From its central base in Milton Keynes, vGI has grown into a pan-European group of companies and is one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of car mats in the Europe. To evidence the remarkable success of the Group, here are a few statistics from their UK operation:

  • 1 in 3 new cars has a vGI product in it
  • vGI processes over 100,000 orders each year
  • vGI sells more than ½ million car mat sets every year
  • vGI boasts more than 100 of the leading vehicle leasing companies as clients
  • vGI is the 3rd largest producer of registration plates
  • vGI has held the brand licence for the RAC and mainly produces white label ranges 
  • vGI fitted more than 5000 light commercial vehicles 
  • vGI supplies leading retailers

Privately owned and managed by Martyn Nash, and with international connections in China, Middle East, South Africa and many more countries, vGroup International is actively seeking to continue its expansion and make sure it remains far and away the leader in its field.
